Styled By You: Plaids, Sweaters & Puffers!

Winter gets a bad rap sometimes. Sure, it can be chilly and yeah, snow is the worst, but it also brings layering season and fresh fits. Winter’s almost over (thankfully), but we wanted to look back on some of your favorite winter outfits so far!

These pics were submitted by YOU as part of the #AExME campaign where we feature real people who take what we make and make it their own.

Mad for Plaid

You realllllly couldn’t get enough of plaid this winter, and for good reason! Wearing plaid during fall and winter adds a pop of color to your outfit during a time of year that’s typically a little drab and neutral.

@highlight_her wore a plaid jumpsuit and super-soft sweater to add a bold style to her #OOTD, @casscardythrifts served up a warm look with a plaid jacket and light wash jeans, and @goodtomicha

 

Puffer Coat SZN

This is the time of year when layering is SUPER important. Leave the house without enough layers and you’ll be shivering your way to class, work, or wherever you’re headed. This is where puffer coats and jackets come to the rescue.

@janibellrosanna wore her puffer coat in a bold hue with flare jeans to create a standout style, and @_christinasilva paired a leopard-print jacket with black jeans and a headband to keep the cozy levels sky high when temps were low.

 

Sweater Weather = Better Weather

It’s no secret that sweaters (and cardigans!) were made for winter. From comfy oversized sweaters to cozy fitted sweaters, you rocked every kind of style this season!

@_sarahwoolston paired her relaxed sweater with ripped jeans for a laid-back look, and @kassidi_noelle created her sweater weather look with a ribbed crewneck under a jacket. And who says crop tops are only for spring and summer? @janibellrosanna pulled this look together with high-waisted jeans and a cropped sweater.

Trying to woo your boo? Put your best foot forward in AirFlex jeans in a dark wash and a button up shirt made from crisp poplin in a cool color. Layer on a workwear jacket so you’re ready for an indoor or outdoor date (ice skating, anyone?), then add a belt and sneakers for maximum comfort.

Pretty Little Things

Start this Galentine’s Day look with a delicate lace bralette under a new dress with our favorite details like a button front, square neck, and long sleeves. Add pretty accessories like hoop earrings and a crossbody bag to store essentials, and wear sneakers to make sure you’re ready for everything the day brings.

Layered Love

Keep your date night or guy’s night out look relaxed with low-key layers and accessories. Start with a long sleeve t-shirt and AirFlex skinny jeans, then add a Sherpa-lined denim jacket, beanie, and sling bag to stay warm and on trend. Add a pop of color with your sneakers, and match them with your top for a put-together look.

Dreamy Vibes

Whatever feels best to YOU is what’s going to look best. Create your most comfortable date night outfit with Dream Jeans featuring our most comfy legging-like denim, then wear a smocked blouse in rich red to get into the spirit of things.

Cozy at its Cutest: How to Wear a Blanket Scarf

Now’s that time of year when all you really want to do is curl up under a warm blanket. Well, we have good news! “Wrapped up & cozy” is actually one of the easiest, most versatile looks to master. One slightly oversized, super-soft blanket scarf can be styled tons of different ways to add an unexpected and statement-making finish to literally any outfit.

AE Blanket Scarf

Tying a scarf might seem like a no-brainer, but a slight variation in the way you style yours can change the whole vibe of your look. Rather than going for a classic wrap-around, try pulling a loop; Fold your scarf in half to create a loop, pull the ends through, and voila!

Luxe textures speak for themselves. If your blanket scarf is sherpa or plush, a loose and casual loop really lets the feel come through.
